Bainbridge blotter | Mistaken identity

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

FRIDAY, JUNE 28

11:54 a.m. A 39-year-old Bainbridge Island woman called police to report a possible violation of a protection order she had against her ex-husband, 39, of Lynwood.

The woman had been staying with her father on Bainbridge, she said, but her ex knew the phone number there. He’d called several times in the past and now had called again, though he’d not used his own phone number. She suspected he’d generated a new number via a website or was using a friend’s phone.

Her father, who had actually taken the call while she was at work, told police a man had asked if his daughter was home, and when he said no the man asked when she would be home. He’d said he wasn’t sure and the man had hung up quickly. He provided police the phone number of the unidentified caller.

Police checked the number and found it belonged to a Child Protective Services agent, a man. The woman confirmed she’d spoken with the agent several times and did have an upcoming appointment with him.

Police concluded there was no reason to suspect a violation occurred.
